With this AAT qualification, you can build on your knowledge of accounting software packages from the Level 1 Access Award in Accounting Software - or you can enter at this level if you already have previous knowledge.  You will learn practical skills, including using accounting software, entering accounting transactions and producing a range of reports.

Navigating a customer service career

As a Customer Service apprentice, Natasha Thomas sailed into a new career with classic narrow boat company Avante.
 
Her placement with the Willington firm – which involved helping run the office, liaising with customers from around the world, inspecting the boats and even driving them occasionally under supervision – led directly to the offer of a full-time job.
 
Natasha’s success was supported by the NVQ in Customer Service she took at Derby College during her placement.

I knew I wanted to work in customer service but in a role that was a bit different. I love this job. No day is ever the same and there’s always so much variety. My College tutor was really encouraging and regularly came to see me at Avante to go through my course work.
